Omission Within a Sentence
8.8.1 Omission Within a Sentence
If the ellipsis occurs within a sentence, ellipses represent the omission.

In some such instances, additional punctuation may be used on either side of the ellipses if it helps the sense of the sentence or better shows the omission.
If the quotation itself contains ellipses, to make clear that the ellipses were part of the original a note to this effect should be included in brackets.
Instead, he shows a stark, rectangular grid…, brilliantly colored.
